Home Depot is selling this Ridgid Top-Screw Bench Chain Vise for $93.  It’ll grip 1/8″ to 2-1/2″ diameter pipe for threading, as well as odd-profile workpieces.  The vise also features posts for bending pipe — it’s worth looking for on eBay and your other used tool sources.

Recently I was shopping for a drill press, and I probably could’ve gotten away with a benchtop model if it was just for woodworking, but I also do metal fabrication so I wanted a stationary model that stands on the floor. I wound up going with this Ridgid drill press.

In setting up a woodshop, I always thought I’d end up with the standard Norm setup — a belt/disk sander combo and a separate oscillating spindle sander — but I’ve read that the motors on the lower-end spindle units can stall out when sanding, and I can’t afford the $1,000+ high-end shop sanders.  I read the reviews of this Ridgid oscillating edge belt/spindle sander and I had doubts about the belt sander part, but I figured at worst I’d end up with an affordable oscillating spindle sander.

You use a chain wrench when a pipe won’t move and you want it to.  You use a chain vise to keep a pipe from moving when it wants to.  This portable chain vise and stand from RIDGID will help you thread, bend, or cut pipe when you’re away from the shop.

Here we see our Ridgid twin-tank aluminum air compressor in its native environment — its central position right under the miter saw is no accident.  This compressor is a slightly dusty star of the show, and the shop wouldn’t be able to function correctly without it.

ToolUp.com is selling the Ridgid model 102 lathe-type internal tubing cutter for $136.62.  Honestly, we didn’t even know this tool existed before we saw it here, but it sure looks like a problem-solver in situations when you need to cut pipe or tubing flush with a surface.

This market research poll on the Ridgid website seems to be a sign of the times — contractors and DIYers alike are so well-connected these days that companies are starting to cater to their mobile gadgets.  The iPhone and other micro-devices with Internet are getting good enough that they can display most websites correctly, but the small screens apparently make for some awkward formatting issues.  I haven’t entered the high-tech world yet and I’m wondering if the situation is as bad as it sounds.

The question then is twofold:  How much tool stuff do you do on a mobile device, and what percentage of your tool stuff isn’t “mobile-friendly?”  Let us know in comments.

When you’re pulling up a hill and your truck needs more power, the transmission drops to a lower gear to compensate — a common occurrence for a vehicle, not so common for a drill.  But Ridgid’s AutoShift drill driver does just that.

When you pull the trigger, it starts in high speed. If it starts to bog down, the drill downshifts to low speed for more torque.  You can also lock out the AutoShift feature so the drill stays in high gear.

A couple years ago we posted about Ridgid’s plastic nut basin wrench.  Ridgid has since updated the 2006 model of this tool to be a “multipurpose under-sink plumbing tool,” and they renamed it the Faucet and Sink Installer.  The notched ends of this tool still fit 2, 3, 4, and 6-tabbed plastic mounting nuts on faucets, sprayers, and ball cocks — but now the tool does so much more.
